Final Flight - Hot Air Balloon Ride
Photograph - Photogaphy
Final flight of the night in a hot air balloon is exciting and so relaxing as you fly over the terrain in northern maine. The Crown of Maine Balloon Festival is a yearly event that takes place in Presque Isle. During this week long event you can take a balloon ride at dusk or dawn and your destination is determined by the direction of the wind. The beauty of the land is in abundance as you fly with the birds and view what they see.
This scene is at sunrise and it was a gorgeous morning filled with mist rising from the lake and the deep blue skies illuminated by the rising sun while giving the clouds a deep soft coloful sight. In the background you can hear the loons singing as they are waking up to enjoy the day before them. This is truly a event you don't want to miss if you are ever in this area.
